London Apartment Fire

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              London’s police force says at least six people have died in a massive fire that broke out overnight at a high-rise apartment building in North Kensington. But officials expect the casualty count to rise as fire crews comb the still-burning 24-storey structure. At least 50 others were taken to hospitals. Edward Daffarn says he’s lucky to be alive, noting he was on the 16th floor when he heard a neighbour’s smoke alarm go off. He says tenants have been complaining for years about safety issues at the building. A witness says she saw a person on the ground catch a baby that was dropped to safety from the ninth or 10th floor.
